I recommend that those on C&L take the weekend "off" to eat clean on your own or to enjoy what the weekend brings. I find that my sugar cravings have ceased and I want to continue with smoothies, salads and juice because I feel better and sleep better this way. Saturday started with a green tea, lemon and honey and a DTOX Rise N Shine smoothie with puerh tea in it instead of coffee. I hit Octavia's 10:30 Atlanta Hot Yoga class and then had a Lean Mean Green. Since it was my birthday weekend, I had a facial and then some shopping with Mary Elle. I had a DTOX Energy, an ImmuniTEA and a probiotic salad. I also had some blueberries and guacamole. 121
Sunday morning I had the green tea and the same Rise N Shine smoothie again. This gets me to noon usually before I want anything else. However, I stopped by DTOX to test some new recipes. I ate two collard wraps because they were so delicious and some chia porridge. I also had DTOX raw oatmeal. After church, I had an ImmuniTEA, a walk in Piedmont Park and that was it until 5. We celebrated Salter's awesome guitar concert at El Taco. I had queso, guac, tacos, and a margarita. And Monday morning, I have bags under my eyes, itchy ears and throat, a stomach that doesn't feel so well and I can't sleep. Blogging at 4am. All a great reason to start back on DTOX.
Update-Sharing weight is always an obnoxious thing. But if you're keeping a weight loss journal, it helps to see. When pregnant with Salter, I was desperate to absorb as much info as possible and was on BabyCenter.com every day. The girls who started the How Much Do You Weigh threads were always annoying. Especially the ones who said I'll go first. I am negative 4 pounds. Well, I always gain all my weight in the first trimester because I listen to my body and my body really wants French fries and mayonnaise. Now I have Vegannaise but you get the point. I fed my nausea but was never sick luckily. So I feel for those who are vomitting but comparing weight with them was frustrating. My weight is too high for my frame which is 3 apples high. I'm like a Smurf so 123 is too high for me. A better measure is to take your measurements or work to fit back into your favorite pair of jeans. During this week of mostly Clean and Lean with smoothies added as needed, I lost 3 pounds. I ended up at 120 on Sunday morning. And I haven't weighed myself since. It's been over a week. I don't attach too much to the weight number. It's much more effective to feel good in your skin or your clothes because that's what's its really all about right? How do you feel in your skin? Measure that.
